Asparagus Seeds - Mary Washington
(Asparagus officinalis) Zones 3-9. Perennial.
Mary Washington Heirloom Asparagus produces dark green shoots with a purple tinge near the top. Asparagus is harvested in late spring.
It takes three years for asparagus to establish itself. Please don't pick before then. Asparagus takes a while to establish a root system and picking before hand can weaken your plants.
Asparagus is usually lightly steamed, or sauteed with butter, but we love it raw! Eaten raw, the flavour is similar to freshly picked snap peas.
**Asparagus berries are inedible, but contribute to autumn flower arrangements.**
These are great all around heirloom asparagus, adaptable to any home organic garden.
